Go Crazy Over Our Hot Choco-Orange Frenzy

7 months ago


Isn’t it amazing how the earthy richness of chocolate and citrus-y burst of orange go so well together? Their marriage of flavors can be best enjoyed in this heartwarming hot beverage made lovelier with  Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate. The dark chocolate powder best complements the addition of orange notes making it a hot chocolate drink to remember.


Makes 1 serving

1 cup Full cream milk
4-5 strips Orange peel*
1 sachet Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate
1 Tbsp Freshly-squeezed orange juice
1 tsp Orange liqueur like Cointreau or Triple Sec
Whipped cream, for garnish
Chocolate curls, for garnish
Orange zest or slice, for garnish

  1. In a saucepot, heat milk and orange peel over low heat, about three minutes. Turn off heat then add the Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate and fresh orange juice. Stir until well blended.
  2. Using a small strainer, pour mixture into a mug. Discard orange peel and stir in orange liqueur.
  3. Top the hot chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream then garnish with orange zest or slice, and chocolate curls. Serve immediately.

*NOTE: Peel orange using a potato peeler, avoiding the white pith of the orange.
